"I ferried the last load of computer equipment and office furniture to the tip and dumped the truck in the Yarra River near the Hawthorn Bridge, after cleaning all fingerprints off the doors and steering wheel. I cleaned the last of my personal belongings from the office. I stopped to look at a photo of Anne and the kids taken last year. It hurt to think how much pain I had caused them in the last six months since events had taken a dramatic turn for the worst. But, it was the reality of this line of work. A periodic slash and burn, cover all traces, move on and never look back. I tucked the photo in my back pocket and sat behind the wheel of the Range Rover - the last of the chattels of my former life that I would be taking with me.

Destination Natimuk. A town of wasters made famous in the '80s during the heyday of Australian rock climbing. Located in the shadow of an imposing chunk of quartzite called Mt Arapiles, originally called Djurite by the local aboriginal community. I had spent a year living at Natimuk during a break from study in 1986. It was the perfect place to drop out of society, to do nothing.....disappear"
